Travel with children-seats

We are travelling with 3 children, one on lap. Would you go for center or window? the seating is 2-4-2.

I'd take a 2 and part of the 4 with the aisle in between.

That way everyone can get in and out easily for trips to the bathroom or just for walking up and down the aisle.

How many total passengers are there? If there are 2 adults, 2 children seated, and a lap child, I'd probably take the 4. If only one adult, I'd probably still take 3 of the 4 so that everyone would be next to each other. Sometimes seats across the aisle from each other don't line up exactly.

I'd take the 4 and put the two kids in the middle. Depending upon the age of the kids and the age of the lap child--there may be room for all 3 to sit ( except for the times you MUST hold the lap child.)

Agreed, definitely take the 4. Better two aisles than one, and being able to put an adult on either side of the children will make your lives easier.

Thanks for your advise. I chose the 4. It has some stairs right behind, so we don't get passengers behind us. Hope thats a good thing. The kids age are 1,3 and 6 by the way.... travelling from lhr to lax on vs007 virgin atlantic.

Can you really cope with a lap child on such a long trip, it will be very difficult, especially if the child wants to move around, and can't. There have been many threads about lap children, it may help if you read them. What happens if the seat in front is used pushed back in recline, what will happen to the litle one, it will be very cramped.
